That is excellent value for money...as I was reading the details I was totting up the value and had added another 5-8k ! There's about 20k of bodywork, paint, parts and engine work alone.
I will bet that some dealers will be calling you.

Was that Neil and Linda's car? A very nice one anyway.

Hi Tony
I'm interested. I've just joined so cant message you directly. Can you send some more pics? Is that interior colour original?
Cheers

Thanks for the comments about the Elan it was Neil and Linda’s Plus 2 and they owned for 35 years before I bought it in 2013.

I have accepted a good offer on the car by someone who sold one and regretted doing so.

Disappointed to miss out, congrats to the new owner. If anyone hears of something else similar, please let me know. Looking for my first Lotus...
